The Development squad journeyed to Ringwood last week to take on Norwood again in the elimination final. We knew it wasnt going to be all our own way as it was last week, and that was certainly the case. We wasted shots in front early and at half time went in 9 x points down. In the 3rd quarter, whilst restricting the opposition to 1.1, we only scored 1.2 ourselves and knew we needed to change things around to have any hope as we were 8 x points down. Then finally, we started to use the ball better and with our desperation rising, began to claw our way back into the game. Even when Norwood kicked their 7th goal, our guys rallied and thew themselves at every contest. When we kicked the last goal to hit the lead with 2 minutes left, some older heads were composed and steady, controlling the temp until the siren sounded with Montrose winning by 3 x points 7.7.49 to 7.4.44
BEST - BENNINGTON, FIELDING, WELSH & McARDLE

AN INITIATIVE OF THE MONTROSE & BLACKBURN FOOTBALL CLUBS
Every game that Montrose & Blackburn Football Clubs compete in now has more at stake than the 4 Premiership points - they are matches that act as a timely remineder for Members of both Clubs and their communities about looking after each other whether at the footy or when we socialise.
In 2014, when the Clubs hosted an AFL International Cup Match at Montrose (between the USA Revolution and the New Zealand teams) and it was decided to dedicate future matches between our Clubs to the "STEP BACK - THINK" campaign to further raise awareness on how to avoid being involved in the often vicious and unwarranted attacks on people that have occurred in recent years at public entertainment venues. There have been numerous deaths and permanent disabilities caused to young males over recent years that have also have the added trauma to the families and friends of both the victims and the perpertrators.
The matches between Montrose and Blackburn are now fought out for the "Step Back - Think Cup" that has been won by Montrose on the first 2 occasions and is currently held by Blackburn after their win in late 2015. No doubt we are looking forward to the rematch this year and we will be putting in our best effort to win the "CUP" back for Montrose Football Club.
Keep your eye open for the 2016 draw as these are great matches to watch as both Clubs vie for the "Cup".
